For 26 years, San Francisco voters have given 75-85% of their vote to millionaire, ruling class member, fascist warmonger Democrat Nancy Pelosi, so she figures she has a blank check to vote any way she wishes to vote. She just came out in support of war against Syria, which follows her recent open support of Obama’s NSA, also known as the Nazi Spy Agency, spying on Americans and foreigners alike, including all our phone calls, emails, etc.

As to these chemical weapons in Syria, as many suspected, the US-backed anti-government forces used the chemical weapons, provided by the US ally, the fascist dictatorship of Saudi Arabia. See

This was, of course, a pretext for the US to overthrow Syria’s government, and continue to Iran, to do the same so as to control the oil fields of the Middle East and encircle the biggest mineral prize of all, Russia.

Obama plans to ask Congress for approval of his slaughter of the Syrian people for oil and munitions profits. This is dangerous in that if the US Congress formally declares war on the Syrian government, all dissenters would be considered treasonous. Another danger is that a new pretext will be manufactured. The US Congress is VICIOUSLY REACTIONARY so asking Congress for approval to make war should be easy UNLESS WE CALL ALL 435 REPRESENTATIVES. For all phone numbers, see

You can make amends for this outrageous support of an utterly reactionary Congressperson first by calling her to tell her to vote No to war on Syria.
Her web page is
http://pelosi.house.gov/contact/write-or-phone-my-offices.shtml
Her contact information is:
Representative Nancy Pelosi
235 Cannon HOB
Washington, D.C. 20515
Phone: (202) 225-4965

90 7th Street, Suite 2-800
San Francisco, CA 94103
Phone: (415) 556-4862

Her voicemail in San Francisco is currently not accepting phone calls, but that will have to change by the end of our Labor Day weekend. If you call Washington DC, you get a cheaper night rate if you call at 6 a.m. our time, which is 9 a.m. East Coast time. Day rates usually start at 7 a.m.

Second, please change your voter registration to Peace & Freedom or Green.

The House of Representatives is elected in its entirety every 2 years. In California, we are suffering from the Top Two disaster primary. In June 2012, the Green Party’s candidate, Barry Hermanson was on the ballot and received 5% of the vote in San Francisco while, coming in 3rd behind the Republican John Dennis who received 13% and Democrat Pelosi came in first place with 74%. In November 2012, when only the Top Two winners make the ballot, San Francisco gave 253,709 votes to Nancy Pelosi, 85% of the vote, and 44,478 votes, 14.92% to Republican John Dennis. Total vote in November 2012 in San Francisco was 364,875, a high voter turnout for the president’s general election. THE REST OF US HAD NO VOTE IN THE PEOPLE SECTION. THAT IS SHAMEFUL. YOU CAN MAKE AMENDS.

Please change your voter registration to Peace & Freedom Party and the Green Party which are working very hard to abolish the Top Two insanity. They need you now to stay on the ballot.

This is typical of San Francisco "pogressive left" which thinks writing a congressperson, or filling out a petition can make a difference.

The job of such groups is to push people back into the mainstream. So what if Congress votes not top authorize an attack next week? It will happen anyway sooner or later under our war monger leaders who are puppets for the ruling class.

Pelosi, Kerry, and Obama want more war. While left-of-center Democrats like Barbara Lee might dissent-- ultimately they want you in the game which gives you less and less say.

The only way out is a complete break with the mainstream parties and the phony third alternatives.
